Revolutionizing the Road: The T6 S400 Turbonator® VGT Turbocharger

Posted by Diesel Power Source on Feb 13, 2024

In the world of freight transportation, where over 70% of goods are moved across the country, truck drivers are the unsung heroes keeping the wheels of our nation turning. Recognizing their crucial role, Diesel Power Source is thrilled to introduce an innovation set to transform the landscape of semi-truck performance – the T6 S400 Turbonator® VGT Turbocharger. This groundbreaking technology not only promises an impressive 10-15% improvement in fuel efficiency but also aims to redefine the driving experience for truckers across the nation.

Unveiling the T6 S400 Turbonator®: 

This VGT (Variable Geometry Turbocharger) is a performance-driven solution designed to elevate the efficiency of semi-trucks. Available as a full turbo or as an exhaust housing compatible with your existing S400 Turbo, the Turbonator® opens the door to a more fuel-efficient and powerful driving experience. 

Eliminating Lag, Maximizing Performance: 

One of the primary challenges of running a large turbo on a rig is the notorious lag that accompanies oversized turbos. The Turbonator® addresses this issue by integrating continually adjusting aerospace-grade stators, improving spool-up time by an impressive 300-500 RPMs faster than fixed vane turbos of comparable size. This means drivers can enjoy the benefits of a large turbo without sacrificing responsiveness. 

Adaptive Performance: 

The Turbonator® exhibits versatility like no other, behaving like a 0.60 a/r ratio on the low end and as high as a 1.70 a/r ratio on the top end. This adaptability ensures optimal performance across various driving conditions, eliminating the lag associated with oversized turbos and providing a seamless driving experience. 

Enhanced Engine Braking Capacity: 

Maintaining the 3rd stage and strategically holding the stator vanes during engine braking, the Turbonator® builds much higher boost. This unique feature allows the engine/jake brake to function at a high capacity, with the ability to generate between 20-30 pounds of boost during engine braking. This not only enhances braking efficiency but also contributes to a safer and more controlled driving experience. 

Benefits at a Glance:

  • Fast Boost Buildup: The Turbonator® accelerates boost buildup, significantly boosting low-end horsepower and torque. 
  • Wider Operating Range: Experience versatility in different driving conditions with a turbocharger that widens your semi-truck's performance spectrum. 
  • Lower EGTs: Efficient combustion and improved airflow lead to lower Exhaust Gas Temperatures (EGTs), promoting engine health and longevity. 
  • Smoke Reduction: The Turbonator® efficiently cleans up exhaust emissions, contributing to a cleaner and more environmentally friendly operation. 
  • Fuel Efficiency: Realize a substantial 10-15% increase in fuel mileage, making the Turbonator® a wise investment for cost-conscious truck owners. 

With the T6 S400 Turbonator® VGT Turbocharger, Diesel Power Source is paving the way for a new era of efficiency in the world of freight transportation. This innovation strikes the perfect balance between power and fuel efficiency, providing truckers with a reliable and performance-driven solution. Upgrade your rig with the Turbonator® and experience the road like never before – more efficient, powerful, and responsive.
